That was the message from Palmerston president Russell Davey yesterday as speculation grew from outside his club that Districts captain Will and classy midfielder Josiah would be wearing black-andwhite jumpers in 2020-21. Will and Josiah are still at Districts after talking with (new coach) Matt Cannard when he was first appointed to the job, Davey told the NT Farrer brothers to remain at Crocs News. They did show some interest in joining us early on, but when Matty was announced as coach and found out what was going on, they held some discussions and decided to stay. Despite missing out on fivetime Dennis Dunn goalkicking trophy winner Will and the brilliant Josiah Farrer, Davey said the Magpies were rapt to get former player Pierce Liddle back as a player and mentor, while adding big-leaping utility Damian Williams. Theyll both be really good for our club, theyre both local boys who have come over to assist the club, Davey said. Pierce has always been a Magpie and wanted to come back home and Damians ability to play right around the ground is a big bonus for us. Davey said the recruitment of Buffalo pair Chris Williams and Daniel Stafford, and the addition of Liddle and Williams from Districts showed his club was keen to move off the bottom of the ladder next season. The Magpies as a football club has a city behind them and we have to pick our game up, he said. The city is passionate about the Magpies and vice versa. GREY MORRIS Star Southern Districts midfielder Josiah Farrer isnt going anywhere next season Picture: KERI MEGELUS Higgins back for Richmond JACK Higgins could hardly see. But after an astonishing recovery from two bouts of brain surgery, the speedy Richmond forward will take the field for the Tigers against Collingwood at the MCG tonight. It has been 364 days since the 21-year-olds last AFL game a loss to Adelaide that also marked Richmonds last defeat. I thought I would never play footy again, probably thought Id never be able to walk again and have to have a carer for the rest of my life, Higgins said back in January.
